Johnson’s project was chosen by a panel of Canadian university faculty, industry researchers, and educators, through a competitive national selection process that evaluated the students’ projects based on content and innovation.

Johnson will be competing against roughly 1,500 other students, from more than 40 countries. She will have the chance to win a portion of the nearly four million dollars in prizes.

This year’s science fair will be in Reno, Nevada from May 10th to 16th.
